    If you do the research, you will realise the Quranic term for Hijab is 'Khimar' which comes from the word 'Khamr' which means to cover something so yes it does state to cover yourself up. Apart from the religious pov, I don't see why it should be a problem. A mean it's the individuals choice and if they want to do something, let them do it.

    Also for those saying how if they went to an islamic country they would have to wear the Burqa, you're wrong. From my knowledge, only Saudi Arab forces you to wear the Hijab and countries e.g. Qatar, UAE, Kuwait, Morocco etc have no such rule. Therefore, you can go in the street in any clothing you want.

    Clearly, you have not educated yourself well enough on Islam. As, the burka is a part of Islam.
    Give me an ayah or verse from the Quran or hadeeth saying that.

    Yes. There is simply no purpose for it and it is a security issue. It is not even part of Islam. I can't believe it still hasn't been banned yet.
    You could say the same of the necktie, i do hope we ban that at the same time, fed up being forced to wear the ****ing things.

    I'm a British Muslim and I'm interested to know as to why many people are strongly for the ban of the Burka?
    To be honest I think it should in the UK. I don't mean to offend any one but my RE teacher was telling me that when she visited another country on a holiday she had to wear a full length robe thing. So I kinda think they should ban it. I mean everyone is entitled to their belief and such but I think it would solve a lot of anxiety on both parts.

    Burqas aren't part of any religion.

    You can cover anything you want, but for clear security reasons, not the face.

    What else does it say in the verse about Khimars? I think some more detail is needed here.

    If you mean the veil with only a small grid through which the individual can speak then yes I think it should be banned.

    Y.u.mad.bro is trying to deceive innocent, naive posters. The covering mentioned in the Quran refers to the bosom and says absolutely nothing whatsoever about covering the head, face or hair. So no, my little deceptive friend, neither burka nor hijab are Islamic :cool:

    I'm perfectly aware of this but just wanted to know if he/she had anything else to add (some Quranic evidence) to support his view

    Burkas are completely fine, I honestly can't understand why anyone has a problem with them.

    People wanting to commit crime and cover their faces don't need burkas to do so and virtually never do. It's just a silly argument that literally makes no sense.
    Agreed.Can you imagine a criminal

    ''Hey boss, do ya think we should wear coverings over our faces while we rob this bank''

    ''No way man, that would be totally illegal and against our code of ethics.''

    You should be allowed to if you so wish and the rest of society will judge you for it.

    Love it when anon people like you try to act smart. Please stop hiding and come forward. Onto the main point, many scholars have claimed that khimar is actually a head covering and if you do your research, you will realise the meaning behind the word and it's interpretation. Also, I don't think you know but there are hadiths which refer to Muhammad wiping his wet hands over his (khimar) which he wore on his head and his socks. Therefore, khimar here actually does tell you that it also applies to headcovering but the general meaning is as mentioned any covering.
    Now, onto my opinion, I don't care whether people cover their heads or not since it isn't my area of concern.

    You can't show whatever you want, precisely. Terrible argument.

    Well, if you ban the burka, by precedent you need to ban every religious headdress. Judaism, Sikhism, Catholicism etc, all have them.
